As you could also see in the "Vote Chess game 2" thread, Batalov said he could hold the "envelope" PM with our move.

Brian said they'd be happy to adjourn, and also "If we could time one of your moves for the week 13th-17th January that would be useful for me as I have exams that week."

I see no reason not to accommodate Brian and have our 18th move deadline be January 18, by one of two different methods specified in the "Vote Chess game 2" thread:

Method 1 puts the burden of replying exactly on seventh day (no sooner) on each team (for two weeks):
1) Resumption date January 4, when our 17th move will be revealed by Batalov,
Gekkos' 17th move deadline would be January 11.
Then if Gekkos don't post 17th move until that day (no earlier than January 11),
then Pirates' 18th move deadline would be January 18, and if we hold our posting until January 18 (no sooner), then Gekkos' 18th move deadline would be January 25.

Method 2 puts the burden of replying exactly on seventh day (no sooner) on Batalov (for two weeks):
2) Or if Batalov will agree, both teams can send their moves by PM to him for two further weeks, and he:
posts Pirates' 17th move on January 4,
posts Gekko's 17th move on January 11, and
posts Pirates' 18th move on January 18.
